Notes: xvii, 327 pages including the index. This book "brings together the most important essays and reviews of Corliss Lamont in the areas of humanist philosophy, civil liberties, world peace, and socialism"—dust jacket.
Edition + Condition: First edition (first printing). A very good copy in a like dust jacket; some dampstaining to lower portion of jacket. This copy is inscribed and signed by Corliss, "For Julian and Juliette Huxley, whose fifty years of cherished friendship match almost exactly my fifty years of essays. Corliss Lamont, 1974." In Julian Huxley's Memoirs, he describes taking Corliss in as a "paying guest in our house in Oxford" (p. 197). Huxley then goes on to describe visiting the Corliss family at their mansion in New York. "Corliss and I still correspond," Huxley wrote, "though he was, and still is, an uncompromising anti-establishment and anti-religious humanist."
In addition to the nice association inscription, Huxley read the book closely and filled the rear endpapers with dense notes, with corresponding annotations on the referenced pages. A wonderful copy.
Publication: New York: Prometheus Books, 1974.
